* As of 2019, the United States Supreme Court contains three Jewish justices - Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, and Elena Kagan - or one-third of the Court's total. However in the whole history of the US Supreme Court, out of 114 justices, only 8 have been Jewish (and 14 have been Catholics). Incredibly however, for a country where Catholics and Jews combined make up barely a quarter of the population, as of 2019 there are 5 Catholics and 3 Jews on the bench, leaving only a single Protestant supreme court justice - and even he was RaisedCatholic!

Added DiffLines:

* A fan asked Creator/JKRowling on Twitter if there were any Jewish wizards or witches in ''Literature/HarryPotter''. She responded that a minor Ravenclaw called Anthony Goldstein was Jewish.

Added DiffLines:

* An aversion in US politics. Not only has there never been a Jewish President of the USA, nor even a Jewish candidate, it was not until 2016 that a Jewish politician (Bernie Sanders) even won a primary. Contrast with UK politics, where there was a Jewish Prime Minister in 1868 (Benjamin Disraeli), and more recently many prominent politicians with Jewish heritage (e.g. Michael Howard, Conservative Leader of the Opposition, and Ed Milliband, Labour Leader of the Opposition).

While a Jewish lawyer in NYC is nothing remarkable, a Gentile pretending to be Jewish is usually doing so because of this trope.

For a minority forming less than one quarter of one percent of the world's population, Jews are disproportionately well-represented both as creators of media and as characters appearing in that media, to a degree that is astonishing. This is largely because much of the most popular media is created in the USA, and specifically in the two parts of the USA with the highest per capita Jewish populations, UsefulNotes/LosAngeles and UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity. Therefore, this trope is an example of SoCalization and BigApplesauce.
